Re: I've attached some pictures taken in Ireland, can you take a look

Question about which camera I was using, 5DM3 with EF 24-105mm 1:4L.

Personally I like the second image (with the flowers in focus and rocks out of focus). Creates more of a story and drama. "Something so delicate and pretty on the edge of a cliff with an angry sea below." as aposed to another OK picture of water and rocks.

 

Regards,

P.S. Love your camera I hope to graduate to one next year. Smiley Happy

I dohn't think so. The new angle turns the wildflowers into weeds. The only thing that would save the original picture is greater DoF.

Re: I've attached some pictures taken in Ireland, can you take a look

I think some version of a shot with in focus flowers and unfocused rocks below could be effective if some care was taken to find a better, less weedy specimen, and to compose it with care as the main subject. It does kind of tell a story as mentioned above.

On the other hand if you printed it and hung it on a wall I might avoid the room because it kind of gives me vertigo!

Why do so many people say "FER-tographer"? Do they take "fertographs"?

Re: I've attached some pictures taken in Ireland, can you take a look

Picture taken on a rather windy day in Ireland during my "healing" tour my daughter and I took last year... My husband had just passed away and we needed to heal.... Since that time I have tried to compose my pictures a bit better... No more rushing just to get the picture

 

I have this picture on a on a large canvas, several have noted they get vertigo just looking at it... 

 

So happy I found this forum...
